Re: Fed up with drunk drivers

View Post
I remember one 1. August, in a small Swiss village a family was leisurely walking home from the celebrations as their children were running around with their friends enjoying the energy.

The parents heard a car coming and suddenly went ballistic yelling at the kids to get way off the road!

They were safe to assume, anyone driving at that time on the 1st of August had probably been drinking.

It is quite the shocker how many people here are generally accepting--or less concerned with drinking and driving.

In Canada it is severely taboo, probably the 2nd worst offense someone could do.

I was hit pretty bad by a drunk driver when I was 15, luckily for me the concussion was bad enough that I have no memory of the incident or any pain or discomfort. A few weeks in the hospital, then a new bike from insurance! Not everyone is so lucky (aka OP's pot!)

Assume ,Probably

First offense is voting for the green party
